It is now six days that President Jair Bolsonaro has ignored Democratic Joe Biden's victory in the American elections. This Thursday (12), he ironically questioned whether the dispute was over.
Bolsonaro so far has not congratulated the elected president, unlike other world leaders, including Donald Trump's allies. Early this Thursday evening, when he arrived at the Alvorada Palace, he stopped to talk to supporters. A woman asked to take a picture with the president and added that the portrait would be sent to Miami, United States.
In the state of Florida, Bolsonaro's favorite, current President Trump, won. However, due to projections of American media outlets, Biden has already obtained the necessary votes in the Electoral College, an indirect system that chooses the President in the USA, to assume the White House on January 20.
"Are you following the elections there? What is your opinion?" asked Bolsonaro. "A sadness," replies the supporter. The president then, ironically, adds: "But are the elections over there already?"
